You'll notice that my outfit pic have been taken outside only on occasion this spring. There are two reasons - the first is that after the unseasonably warm winter, we're having a relatively cool spring. Sigh. The second is much more exciting - after feeling settled in our apartment, we're settling outside our apartment. We're sprucing up our balcony!
Scott's parents generously bought us our patio set as a wedding gift.
Our balcony isn't quite big enough for the whole set, but it was cheaper to buy the set than just the chairs and the bench. Plus, years down the road, I'm sure we'll be glad to have the table, too!
Instead, we got this bench to use as a coffee table AND storage... plus we can use it for extra seating when we have extra friends over!
Just for future reference, never buy a patio set that requires assembly on the weekend before you start a new job.Fortunately, the summer hasn't even started yet, so this can be a work in progress. I'll keep you updated!
